Aidan O’Connell has arguably been THE story of the NFL preseason thus far.

The Las Vegas Raiders’ rookie quarterback has starred in both of his preseason performances.

According to NFL analyst Warren Sharp, O’Connell is leading all quarterback in the preseason in deep throwing. Check out these numbers:

That’s impressive and important since O’Connell wasn’t known for throwing deep at Purdue. So, if he can develop this trait in the NFL, it will go a long way.

Yes, it’s just the preseason, but there’s a lot to like about O’Connell.
